Rumours that Coventrys agents are demanding £5k per week to sign a new deal evidently this is twice the West Ham cap and the club has said no

Personally I think the club are right to say no. £125k a year is more than enough for any teenager especially when they haven't played first team league football.

I posted a few weeks back that it could be time to let Masuarka play his natural position on the left going forward with Anderson moving inside or on the right

Cresswell is no longer the player he was so I would put Johnson at left back or bring the new lad catdosa into a back three but it may be too soon for that

Lanzini is getting back to his pre injury days but is still lightweight it actually was quite distressing seeing him trying to push Walker off the ball only to bounce off him and go flying flat on his face. I though Wiltshire was completely off there were no over the top balls for Haller to run on to and once Antonio had gone off there was no pressure in the final tbird

Lot of people saying we need to get 3 points at Brighton but having watched them on MOTD Against Watford that may be as hard as beating City. Still I'm not too downhearted it's early days

With regards to VAR or as I prefer to call it VAD (Video Aided Decision) ) I thought it was OK decision were right and players are going to have to think a bit more about the rule changes.

If they had put a bit more on the screen for the Penalties it would have been so easy to understand a simple "VAR checking encroachment" everyone would have understood immediately

Great fun to silence the away supporters when the Jesus goal was scrubbed put and the atmosphere for a few minuites after was great

Look forward as usual to you responses.

Agree 100% Mercerl with Cresswell and Lanzini.
I also dislike the constant diving from Lanzini.

According to Sky American defender Aaron Long is back on the radar played 11 times for the USA and currently at New York at approx £4 maybe worth a punt but I did post about a month ago he might not be up to the PL. Correctly there appears to be a Work Permit problem

Does this mean Winston may have to retire and Oggy is on his way.


1.) 01 Aug 2019 11:47:53
Aaron Long would be nothing more than a back up and that’s IF he was able to get a work permit.

I don’t see us letting both Ogbonna and Reid go, so if Reid is retiring then Ogbonna is going no where. Same can be said if Ogbonna is sold I see Reid staying.

2.) 01 Aug 2019 13:09:04
id like to ask what ED and supporter think of Read now.
Before his injury i thought he was great but i havnt seen him this year, is his injury problems behind him and how is he performing.

{Ed001's Note - I haven't seen him since his injury and I think Diop and Balbuena have the places nailed down.}

3.) 01 Aug 2019 21:19:54
Before the injury he lost a lot of pace can’t sell him till he proves his fitness may need a loan to a championship side to get game him game.



28 Jul 2019 05:08:35
Reading online Hugill off to QPR. for a season long loan.


1.) 28 Jul 2019 10:23:10
And I think we’ll still be paying some of his wages!

2.) 29 Jul 2019 00:40:45
Hopefully he does well as obviously we couldn’t find anyone who wanted to buy him. If we could have sold him it would have been better.

3.) 29 Jul 2019 14:31:43
No doubt any interest would have been worth peanuts at least this way he has the chance to play well and increase value or prove further we were sold a lemon.

Rumours around West Ham signing Moussa Morega from Portugal ses to have had a great last 2 seasons with 2 goals every 3 games got to say that'll do for me

And if Arnie has put in a txfer request let him go he's become too much of a diva and will just P""" us all off.


1.) 02 Jul 2019 19:26:52
Agreed start fresh and go for time Warner. And marega is at least hungry and can score goals.

2.) 02 Jul 2019 20:22:48
Let’s face it!
Arnautovic has been poor, he has had a good couple of months when moyes put him upfront, apart from that done naff all! All West Ham fans want is someone giving it 100%, that’s not arnie. Take the 22mil and good riddance, time to start learning from the payets and Arnautovics is that these players have form for this behaviour and all clubs should leave well alone.

3.) 02 Jul 2019 20:49:42
Marega would do well I think, prefer him to Gomez big powerful and mobile looks made for PL.

4.) 02 Jul 2019 22:58:00
His brother makes me laugh saying West Ham are treating him like a commodity. He has less brains than Marko. Hello kn*bhead! He has a contract and we decide what price we sell him for. He was happy to use West Ham as a stepping stone to get out of Stoke. I guess when it’s convenient for them to use West Ham for more money (ie. his new £100,000 a week contract) it’s OK but when we want more money for him he takes offence. Arrogant and stupid at the same time. Let him go. he’s not all that. Let him go and become an absolute nobody in China and end his career like it deserves to be ended. Badly! I’ll have Rondon all day long over Arnie. Less goals perhaps but better attitude. 😡😡😡😡😡.

5.) 03 Jul 2019 00:41:59
He scored the same amount 11 last year in a mediocre Newcastle side I think he could do a good job for us.

6.) 03 Jul 2019 01:13:34
Less goals? How many goals did Arnie score in the second half of the season? Let him go.

7.) 03 Jul 2019 06:26:33
I think most WH fans agree Arnie must go. Bad influence, bad attatude, disruptive, sulks and what's more he wants to leave. We don't need players like him at WH.

8.) 03 Jul 2019 11:26:56
You’re all absolutely right. Let me go. Look what happened to Payet when he left. He slipped into obscurity and has become little more than an average performer.
If MP believes in Rondon then so should we. He played for him at Malaga and potentially fits into how amp wants us to play the game. And he’s not going to cost a fortune.
Greedy I know, but I’m hoping for Rondon, Marega and Gómez. 😂😂😂😂.

9.) 03 Jul 2019 11:45:47
Arnie and his brother are everything wrong with the modern game in one package, wouldn't let him hold us over a barrel like Payet did though. I would sell for any offers over 25 million.

10.) 03 Jul 2019 19:04:38
Rondon gomez marega all powerful and strong ideal for bruising nature of premier league. I'd take any two of them.

11.) 03 Jul 2019 21:11:28
I see Marega is getting some bad press from some West Ham fans. They are saying he hadn’t proven himself. In my option 22 goals in a season and 6 goals and 2 assists in the Champions league trumps anything we have or have had in last 10 years. I would take him all day long. Power and pace. We also raised our eyebrows when we brought in Demba Ba and he did some great things for us, and in my opinion was VERY similar to Marega.

12.) 04 Jul 2019 18:57:18
A committed MAREGA or money grabber ARNAUTOVIC it's a no brainer. COYI.

From the 2nd November till the 18th January we have no 3PM Saturday home kick offs

I have a 2 hour journey to the London Stadium and a 2 hour journey home thanks a lot whoever allowed this.

Reading this morning. Of a spitting incident of Zaha on Rice. Evidently he has history of this back in 2011

In terms of fairness the FA must look at this remembering Masuarka got a 6 match ban for same.

During the game I though that his behavior was poor arguing with the linesman etc.

Would love to know you guys thoughts.


1.) 06 Oct 2019 23:55:34
To be honest I see that as between Crystal Palace, Zaha and the FA - makes no difference to us now, we need to push forward after the international break.

2.) 07 Oct 2019 09:43:22
Not sure about this one. The FA should 100% look at it though and make a comment. Palace will compete for top 10 this season so their best player potentially getting a ban means a lot to teams around them.

Thought we were ok on the night, I agree that our attacking midfielders needed to move the ball quicker though, as Palace like to sit back and kill the game. HOWEVER, this is what Palace want so that they can hit teams on the counter, and the slower game we played on the night was sensible/ cautious and SHOULD have been enough to win the match. On another day Haller scores his sitter and Anderson scores his volley and we are 3-0 up, and us fans are very happy with the performance.
What is clear though is that we must be more CLINICAL if we are to win more games. Horrifying stat that Anderson has only scored 1 goal in 23 matches now. He needs to add the end product to his game QUICK! I say get Nathan Holland in for a PL game, because as it stands it seems he is the only player with no competition for his place (who is our 2nd choice LW? ) . Even Lanzini out there and then Fornals/ Wilshere behind Haller might jolt him into scoring some goals.



25 Sep 2019 21:43:53
Oh well back to normal then no pun intended but seems we just fade and die

Obviously MP doesn't fancy a cup run and worrying if we get injuries.


1.) 25 Sep 2019 22:23:14
MP has just said we lacked motivation well that's your job mate and why you get paid good money I could sort of understand a 1-0 but not 4 and I don't know what's happened to BALBUENA he's completely shot of any confidence but that comes with losing your place I suppose it wasn't like we had a second string side out but I'm not just singling out players but here we go ROBERTO SNODGRASS ZABALETA ain't good enough to play for us IMO but the whole performance was shockingly poor . COYI.



21 Sep 2019 13:49:09
I see Hernandez scored for Seville last night a free kick from outside the box I have now read the report 4 times and it still says outside the box from 25 yards

Wonders will never cease.


1.) 21 Sep 2019 22:49:19
He is a good player just never got near a free kick in england.



21 Sep 2019 08:06:22
Mark after 60 years of supporting West Ham I'll be happy to still be alive in 6 years time

Do you reckon Crossrail will be open by then Seriously the way the U23s are going we might do it in half that time another great comeback last night.

Apparently had the medical yesterday and will sign today

Meanwhile Diangana year long to the Baggies plus Cullen back to Charlton for the season will get good experience

For me this is 0ne of the best Windows for a long long time

Morning Mark think it's Aaron Long a 26 year old defender playing with the New York redbulls he appears to have been around a bit and has played 76 games for the Red Bulls

Personally would have thought on his experience he wouldn't be up to PL standard but who knows.

Having looked at the stats over the last few weeks it would be Seb Haller and Moisa Marega for me Haller played outstanding last 2 seasons at Frankfurt as part of an attacking 3 and Marega has an outstanding return per game would remind me of a Hartson and Kitspn partnership

Not so excited about Rondon but he does have Premier experience - all 3 would be amazing.

We might as we have kept Perez he actually scored almost as many goals as chocaritto and was only on the pitch half as long.

Totally agree he was outstanding never had a chance at West Ham with the injuries I thought it was as low as £450K probably worth £10million on that display.

Well said Mark it's always the big club fans who run down other clubs playets

I first watched Declan 3 years ago when he was captain of the U23s and it was clear how he directs players.

At u23 ges its much easier to listen to what is being said 0n the Pich I well remember a game against Wycombe where he was shouting at James Coins and was telling Trott to pick his ge up.

I thought then that he was a Captain on the making and nothing has changed my mind His aboty to to take a pass and lay it off quickly and to be in the right position is outstanding.

Sad that he never really made a significant contribution to West Ham proves that reputation means very little these days I see he's taken a 50% paucut as well.
